News from the art world: National Campaign for the Arts

Last Friday the 17th of September was the National Day of Action as part of National Campaign for the Arts. Plenty of events were organised nationwide to demonstrate the importance of the arts for the country. The National Campaign for the Arts ensures the arts are on local and national government agendas and recognised as a vital part of contemporary Irish life.

As written in The Irish Examiner ‘The National Campaign for the Arts was founded in September 2009, following the publication of the McCarthy report, which proposed severe cutbacks in funding to the arts. The campaign encourages members of the public to email their TDs, calling for the preservation of funding to the arts. ‘

In Drogheda Nick Reilly, Board member of Droichead Arts Centre was talking on LMFM during the Micheal Reade Show about the importance of the arts nationwide referring to the excellent reputation Ireland has worldwide, generating fantastic musicians, artists, writers etc.
